Media Statement by Head of the KZN Department of Health, Dr Sandile Tshabalala - Renewed attempts to derail security tender adjudication process will not succeed

24 August 2020

As the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Health, we have noted with serious concern attempts to once again derail the process of the adjudication of the security tender bids, by certain unknown individuals.

We have become aware of correspondence that has been circulating on social media, containing what is purported to be official 'leaked documents' relating to the adjudication process.

This correspondence contains a number of spurious and inflammatory claims.

We wish to state, once and for all, that these documents are fabricated, do not exist, and are not known to the Department.

Previously, confidential documents of the Department were illegally accessed and published on social media, compromising the integrity of the process.

It appears that forces have now resorted to a new strategy in the hope of creating uncertainty and confusion among stakeholders.

As a Department, we have taken every conceivable step to safeguard the integrity of this process, and we intend to see it through to finality.

The intention to award the security bids will be published in the Government Gazette in due course.

Issued by Dr Sandile Tshabalala: Head – KZN Department of Health
